The project proposes a methodology to systematically locate suitable mitigation sites on the South Carolina Coastal Plain that could potentially contribute to the State's wetland resource. It utilizes a currently available Geographic Information System (GIS) and 1:24,000-scale information sources to automate the mitigation site evaluation process. It can be generalized or focused on the basis of different scale data appropriate to the geographic coverage of the investigation.
